The Orange Ribbon is the international symbol used to promote Supervised Visitation Awareness Month during the month of May.
Supervised visitation centers exist to provide a safe haven for children during parental visitation.
Children are often caught in the middle of their parents’ problems, especially when there has been a history of abuse. The Mitchell Area Family Visitation Center is designed for children and their separated or divorced parents when there has been conflict involved with visitation, domestic abuse or child abuse. The center serves as a comfortable, neutral location for the transfer of children for traditional visitation and as a location for monitored on-site visitation.
Services are offered to parents that are working with the court system, Department of Social Services, a family service agency or any other family that may need assistance during a difficult transition time such as a divorce or parental separation.
The Mitchell Area Family Visitation Center offers services including supervised visitation, supervised phone calls, assisted exchanges, common sense parenting classes and the SMILE education program for separating or divorced parents.
